“A great journal! Fast publication, good positioning in the field, lots of great papers.”
          Paul Thompson, PhD

          Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, UCLA

"I am delighted to see the inception of this Journal; it represents a maturation of our community and reflects a paradigm shift towards functional integration in the brain. It captures the growing acceptance and excitement about characterizing distributed systems in both anatomical and functional terms. This has to be the way forward for the imaging neurosciences.”         
          Karl Friston

“Powerful new neuroimaging methods have opened up exciting opportunities to characterize brain connectivity in unprecedented detail. This journal provides an excellent venue for communicating discoveries about brain circuits and brain networks to a broad, multidisciplinary audience.”
          David Van Essen, PhD
          Washington University

“The study of anatomical and functional connectivity is one of the most exciting new frontiers in modern neuroscience. This exciting journal provides a much needed forum for publication and scientific exchange. Brain Connectivity is instrumental in moving this growing field forward in new directions.”

"Brains get their smartness from their special connectedness. Brain Connectivity may be the perfect forum where debate about structure-function relationship at micro-, meso-, and macroscopic levels can be based on quantitative grounds."

“Recent advances in MRI technologies, especially diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and resting-state functional MRI (rsfMRI), have spurred renewed interest in human brain connections. These non-invasive technologies can provide anatomical (DTI) and functional (rsfMRI) information about brain neuronal connections, which have been one of the most difficult challenges in biomedical research. Because what we want to characterize is an astronomical entity—100 billion neurons, each with connections to many other neurons through dendrites and axons—any single technology could not possibly delineate the entire picture. We, thus, need to rely on many different types of techniques (MRI, PET, EEG, MEG, electronic recording, chemical tracers, etc.) in different models (human, monkey, rodents). This research field obviously requires a platform where researchers with different backgrounds can interact. The introduction of Brain Connectivity is very timely for all of us working in this interdisciplinary research field. The Journal helps us to interact and deepen our understanding of how our brains work.”

"This journal is the first to bring together the diverse community working in this rapidly expanding field. It is a valuable resource to anyone with an interest in structural or functional brain networks."

“The title says it all: The brain 'is' its connectivity, and obtaining its wiring diagram will be a defining pursuit in the neurosciences for decades to come. This journal is the ideal tool to track our progress.”
